Out with the old in with the new


Monday, February 27
Feltner on the trading block?

image_name2
Feltner a Mariner???
There have been reports that the Yankees might be talking trade with the Mariners. Already faced with a surplus of outfielders, the Yankees have been rumored to have offered veteran outfielder Craig Feltner to the Mariners in exchange for ace righthander Tony Kuhnheim.

Feltner has denied any such trade talk. "Although it would be a dream come true to play for the Mariners, I have not requested a trade." However, an incriminating photograph might have just let the cat out of the bag. (See picture)



Rain Rescues Yankees

After falling behind to the Brew Crew behind several errors, the already wet field was made unplayable more rain ending the game in the 3rd inning.

Up next.....the Bulls at Sycamore HS Wed the 15th at 6:30....BP at 5:30


Bring on the Royals!

The Yankees will take on Royals in the championship of the winners bracket of the National division Wednesday night at Crosely. The winner will automatically advance to the championship game and have to be beaten twice to be eliminated. The loser of this game will go down to the losers bracket and have to win three games to win the championship.



Playoff Time!

The Yankees "second season" begins Wednesday night September 7th at Roselawn Park as the second seeded Yankees take on the seventh seeded Hawks. The winner of this game gets to play the winner of the Cubs and Dragons game on Sunday morning.

On Deck.......the Reds Wed. 6/22 at 6:30 pm Sycamore HS BP at 5:30


GAME DAY !!!!!!!!!

Wednesday, March 29
Successful scrimmage vs Meridians

image_name2
Sunday's scrimmage game vs the Meridians was an overwhelming success. Yankee pitchers looked to be in midseason form. Willie Bailey, Casey Hall, Brad Younger, Lucas Watson, Rob Rendle, and Mike Kretten all tossed 1 inning.


Another scrimmage has been set for 3:00 Sunday April 9th vs the Rockies.

The regular season opener is scheduled for Sunday April 23rd. We will open up at home against the Northern Kentucky Orioles.

The entire schedule will be posted shortly.


Monday, April 10
Scrimmage vs Rockies

The Yankees and Rockies scrimmaged yesterday at Sycamore. Although it was a bit sloppy at times, the pitching looked good and the hitters are finally starting to get their timing down a little bit.

Just two weeks until the opener with the Northern Kentucky Orioles April 23rd at Sycamore!


Up Next: The Rockies

Yankees and Rockies Sunday morning @ Sycamore. 9:30 first pitch. We can pick up some ground with a win as two teams ahead of us, the Cubs and Royals, are playing each other!

Time to impress the Dragons

Obviously our first win over the Dragons, and presumably all 3 last year, didn't leave a good impression with some guy named "Shoe" on the Dragons. Here is what he posted on OUR website about our first meeting this year.


7. - Posted April 29, 2005 10:38AM

shoe

Dragons

I was thinking the game summary of the Dragons/Yankees should have gone something like this: Yankees defeat Dragons 9-5 in 4 1/2 innings (high school game cut us short). Yankees benefited from numerous walks by Dragons' pitchers, as well as 9 stolen bases off of the Dragons' geriatric catcher. Yankees hit one ball hard all game, and it should have been caught. In short, Dragons hand game to Yankees --- typical Dragons.


Lets give them a win they might be impressed with. Much like we did in the playoffs last year 12-2 , when Mo hit 2 HR's off these guys in one inning. I guess those balls were hit hard??


GAME DAY!!!!!

Check out the Yankees as we take on the Dragons(2-2) at Sycamore High School tonight May 18th at 6:30 pm.

Max Bats are here!

A representative from Max Bats (Sean Casey's choice) will be at our practice this Sunday March 13th. He will have a wide range of bats to try. So if you haven't purchased your wooden bats yet, come ready to order your lumber. Pitchers and catchers at 3 pm everyone else at 4 pm indoors at Sycamore.

Bring on the Dragons!!

Yankees and Dragons at 10 a.m. Sunday morning at Sycamore. Lets beat the tar out of Billy Kintner and his boys!!!!

Let's Play Ball

With opening day of April 24th less than a month away we will hold our spring intersquad scrimage this Sunday April 3rd at 9:30 am at Sycamore HS. (weather permitting)

Up Next: Hawks Pay Visit to the Red Hot Yankees

Come out and watch your undefeated Yankees take on the Cincinnati Hawks fresh out of the Dayton league. Willie, Mo and the gang hope to continue with their league leading scoring.

SUNDAY MAY 22, 9:30 am SYCAMORE HIGH SCHOOL.....GO YANKEES!!!!!


Yankees play for first place

The 4-2 Yankees will look to break a 2 game losing streak as they take on the Royals Sunday morning at Middletown High School. First pitch is set for 9:00 a.m. in a battle of the two top teams in the National Division.

Mariners up next!

The Yankees will host the Mariners Sunday morning at Sycamore H.S. First pitch is set for 9:30, batting practice is set for 8:30.

Monday, April 9
Opener vs Astros

The Yankees will open the 2007 baseball season on Sunday April 22nd vs the always tough Cincinnati Astros. Gametime will be at 9:30 at Sycamore H.S.

This year's schedule consists of 28 regular season games and a double elimination tournament beginning on August 26th. The league All Star game will be held on Wednesday August 29th at Crosley Field at 7 p.m.

We will play each of the other 13 league members twice for 26 games, and a pair of games against similar teams in the Dayton Roy Hobbs league. One of the Dayton games will be in Dayton and one will be at home.

16 of our 26 games are scheduled for Sycamore, with 2 each at CHCA, Kings, Crosley, and Deer Park. We will play one game each at Lebanon and Ryle high schools. I would presume that the home Dayton game will also be at Sycamore?

Three rainout makeup dates have been set aside for June 13th, July 18th, and August 22nd. There are just two byes scheduled, they are Wednesday April 25th and Wednesday May 9th. This is because of the lack of available fields during high school season. We will be playing every Wednesday starting May 16th.

The league will also observe 4 holidays this year by not playing on the following dates May 13th (Mother's day)May 27th (Memorial Day) July 4th (Independence Day) and September 2nd (Labor day)

I should have the entire schedule up soon. Just click on the schedule button to the left.

I'll have the rest of the schedule up by the end of the week.



Wednesday, September 12
Win #99 a big one!

The Yankees strong pitching came through again Wednesday night as the team earned its first ever win over the Astros 4-2. Casey Hall threw 7 plus innings allowing just two runs, while Jared Cutter came in to slam the door in th 8th and 9th innings.

The Yankees 99th win in team history has sent them to the winners bracket finals. The Yankees will take on the top seeded Sting who bring a 17 game win streak into the game. The Yanks and Sting split two games during the regular season, with the Yankees handing the Sting one of their two losses this year.

 

Great job guys, lets get #100 on Sunday!



Tuesday, July 15
Yankees slay the Dragons

Jared Cutter carried a no hitter 2 outs deep into the 6th and cruised to a 6-1 win over the Dragons. Rendle was the hitting star with a pair of doubles and a pair of walks. Yankees grind out 6 runs against a very good Dragons pitcher.

6/15/2011 Raymond Lopez. I just moved up from Florida for work but while there I was in the Orlando/Tampa ABL. I'm 25 yrs old and played ball through high school and for a year in Orlando before I had to move. My primary position is 1st base but I can play 2nd and SS. The Orlando ABL was a wood bat league as well and that's what I am looking for. Unfortunately due to work I can only play on some Sundays but near all wednesdays and therefore prefer Wednesday games as much as possible. Thanks and I hope to hear from you soon.

I was the shortstop on the 1999 Cincinnati Elder Baseball team which won the State Championship that year.

I continued my baseball career in college at Eastern Oregon University. I also played summer collegiate baseball for the Carolina Copperheads of the Southern Collegiate Baseball League, which is a wood bat league. I am happy to provide more info if needed but excited about the opportunity to play competitive again

Nick Meyer I played high school at loveland and college at the university of rio grande im interested in getting info on how I can join a baseball team in your league. Im 26 years old 

3/12/2011 Ryan Patrick    Please add me to your list of FA players.  I can play any position.Played all throughout my school years, mostly junk pitcher, outfielder. 6-1 215 32 yrs old. Played for St X High (class of 97) Zang's, Jim Collins, WestSide in summer leagues. Thank you for adding me, I'd really like to play as an alternate or full-time roster player.

Brian Church  I am currently 32 . I played throughout my youth and in high school in Ohio. I was brought in as a tryout for a college team, only to be injured during "spring training", which resulted in shoulder surgery. After that I have only played in softball leagues and coached many youth teams.

Brett McEachern   I came across your ad through a google search for adult baseball leagues in Cincinnati. I played baseball all through my childhood and into my teens. I quit during high school to focus on other endeavors, and have only played in softball leagues since which just isn't the same game. I'd like to get back to playing competitive baseball again and this league sounds like the right place. I don't know what kind of vital stats you are looking for, but I'm 26 years old, turning 27 this December, throughout my career I played pitcher, short stop and center field, but I am versatile and flexible.

Mark Branch. I am interested in playing ball. I am 29 years old and have a good baseball background. Although I haven't played in about 3 years. I played from the age of 4 till I was 18.

Adam Clements  
Hi, I am interested in forming a new team in your league. I spent the last two summers playing in the COMABL in Columbus. I moved back to Cincinnati a few months back. I have a group of friends that I grew up playing with (all of whom played h.s. and/or college ball, and are around 28 years old).

Jason Byars moved up in December with my job. Idon't know enough guys yet to start a team, but I would like to be a
free agent in your league and get picked up. I played from 5 - 18 and a little club ball in college. I play center feild and pitched. I am a lefty. I would need to start preparing asap if I could beconsidered as a pitcher again. Please let me know what to do so I can get started soon. thank you, look forward to hearing back. phone number below. I am 27 years old.

Don Helbig I played through my high school years, and in the 30 and over leagues that included some former MLB players like Dave Parker in the mid to late 90's, but haven't played since. I know I could still put the bat on the ball, but defensively I would be limited to being a corner outfielder with a below average throwing arm, and someone that could fill in at first base and if necessary could catch (wouldn't throw many guys out stealing).
My work schedule wouldn't allow for many Sunday games in the spring, but after Memorial Day I would be able to make it to most of the Sunday games. Wednesday nights would never be a problem.

2010 CINCINNATI ROY HOBBS CHAMPS!

The Yankees capped off a terrific season last night with a 4-0 win over the Suds to claim their first championship in team history. A post game celebration in the dugout saw manager Mike Plaatje get a Hudepohl shower and an ice bath in a 10 minute span.

 The Yankees also won the regular season title with a 19-6 mark, and finished the postseason by sweeping all 4 games by a combined score of 28-1 to finish off the season with a 23-6 mark.

 Scott Barber threw a shutout in the championship game to run his record to 10-0 with a ridiculous 0.23 ERA and 117 K's in 78 innings. Barber also managed to hit .510 as well.

 Mike Shrimpton had a big season with a .475 average and on base percentage over .600, K.C. Fread was an iron man catching 28 of the teams 29 games, while hitting .411 and leading the team with 27 RBI.

 Kevin McClung hit .390, drove in 23 runs and led the league in runs scored with 37, while playing gold glove defense at shortstop and picking up 4 wins on the hill. Jared Cutter registered  6 wins on the mound while hitting an impressive .383 with 19 RBI.

 Left handed pitcher David Pearson had another solid year on the hill with a 2.45 ERA, 2nd year players Kevin Owles and Ed Macy each played vital roles, and all of the rookie players for 2010 made big contributions including Chuck Moore, Dave Shayeson, and Tanner Lahmers.

 Longtime veteran players Mike Plaatje, Chris Shrimpton, Jason Ehrhardt, Matt Menke, Mike Soto, Eric Ditmer, and Bradley Younger all got to win a championship after being so close so many times in the past.

Thanks to everyone for a memorable season, I can't wait until next April to do it again. How about a repeat?

Yankees regain 1st place

The Yankees 4-2 win over Deerfield coupled with the Sting's 7-4 loss to the Dragons Wednesday night has put the Yankees back in first place.

After suffering a loss to the Astros , David Pearson looked much more like himself , firing a complete game for his 3rd win of the season!

Nick Trimmer contriuted with a couple of big 2 our RBI's while Rob Rendle added a long triple and solid defense in center.

 

The Yankees are back in action Sunday morning against the Cubs at Sycamore



Monday, June 8
Offense finally shows up!

For the first time this season the powerful Yankee offense made an appearance. The Yankees bang out 16 hits, including homeruns from Rob Rendle and Jared Cutter, as the Yankees improve to 5-1 with an 11-5 win over the Bulls.

 Cutter also picked up the win on the hill going 6 strong innings. Rendle and Pearson finished up to seal the victory.

Challenging week ahead, with the always tough Royals on Wednesday night and the defending champion Sting on Sunday!



Tuesday, July 15
Yankees hike up skirts and beat Astros

After a week filled with trash talk, and the Astros questioning our manhood. We go out and pound their ace pitcher for 8 runs and 13 hits. Casey Hall went the distance beating the Astros for the second consecutive time. Rob Rendle hit a long 3 run homerun to dead center, and the defense was outstanding.

 

Unfortunately, the Astros showed their true colors afterward coming up with multiple excuses as to why they lost and even protested the game. Stay tuned, the rematch is set for July 30th



Saturday, August 9
Royals stifle the Yankees!

The Yankee bats were quieted by a solid RHP from the Royals who threw a 7 hit shutout. Not too many highlights for the Yanks on this night!

Thursday, September 20
Yankees let one get away!

The Yankees led the Sting for 26 outs Sunday, but found #27  to be rather elusive as they surrender two in the ninth to lose a haertbreaker to the Sting 3-2. The Yankees now head for the losers bracket where they will need to win 2 games just to get another shot at the Sting!

Thursday, September 6
Headed for the final 4!

A strong 2007 playoff debut for the Yankees as they knock off their longtime rivals the Royals 7-3. A 1st round bye, combined with last night's win, allows the Yankees to advance to the final 4 of the winners bracket. The third seeded Yanks will get another shot at the second seeded Astros on Sunday morning. The Astros took both regular season meetings by one run each.

 

Start time will be a little earlier Sunday morning, with the first pitch to be thrown out at 9:15.

Yankees get revenge!

After getting beat by the Mariners in the first round of the playoffs the Yankees exacted a small measure of revenge by beating the M's 7-4. Rob Rendle threw 5 shutout innings retiring 15 of 16 batters, while striking out 10. Run scoring hit by Decker, Mercer, and Ehrhardt.

The Yankees advance to play the Cubs Wednesday night September 20th at Crosley Field. First pitch is set for 7 p.m.


Thursday, September 21
4th time is a charm!!

After losing all three games with the Cubs in the regular season, the Yankees finally broke the Cubs spell Wednesday night with a 14-3 win in the playoffs. The Yankees will face the Reds Sunday morning, with the winner advancing to the championship series against the White Sox.

Congratulations to the Cubs on a great season and winning the regular season division championship! We look forward to seeing you guys on the field again next year!


Monday, August 21
Makeup schedule

The next three dates are reserved for makeup games. Wednesday August 23rd, Sunday August 27th, and Wednesday August 30th.

We will get to play on the first two dates, but we were given ANOTHER "bye" for the last date. Since there are an uneven number of teams in the league, a bye is necessary for each date. Which begs the question. Since all the bottom divisions have already had THREE byes, why not give an upper division team one bye? Especially since some upper division teams have played 50+ games already this year?

At any rate, we will play the Reds at Sycamore on Wednesday the 27th at 6:15. Notice the early start time. We will play Sunday at Sycamore vs the Orioles at 9:30.


Friday, February 9
Practice Sunday!

This Sunday's practice (2/25) will start at 4:30 in the gym at Sycamore High School.


Monday, February 19
Big shoes to fill!

The Yankees lost one of their most productive players in team history last week with Mike Soto's relocation to Nashville.

Mike found a great career opportunity that he couldn't pass up. He'll be missed, not only for his wisecracks in the dugout, but also for putting up some very impressive stats over the past three years.

Mike is the teams single season record holder for hits (44) RBI's (37) and batting average at .571.

We would like to wish Mike good luck in Nashville, and we're sure it won't be long before he hooks on with a team down there!


Monday, March 5
Get the wood out!

Several decisions were made at the most recent league meeting including a switch to wood bats for all games.

With the move to wood the league also decided that it was no longer necessary to break teams up in to "divisions" as we have done each of the last two years. We now have one big 14 team league. Each team will play the other 13 teams twice for a total of 26 regular season games.

In addition, the postseason tournament will also include all 14 teams in a double elimination format.

The 14 teams are as follows:

Sting (formerly the Suds)
Astros
Bulls
Royals
Rangers
White Sox
Cubs
Yankees
Reds
Rockies
Mariners
Orioles
Patriots
Old Suds (formerly Brew Crew)

Opening day is set for April 22nd. We will play 1 of the first 3 Wednesdays (either April 25th, May 2nd or May 9th) Starting May 16th we will play every Wednesday.

The days in which there won't be games include Mothers Day, Memorial Day, 4th of July, and Labor Day. The All Star Game is tentatively scheduled for Augiust 29th.




Monday, April 9
Opener vs Astros

The Yankees will open the 2007 baseball season on Sunday April 22nd vs the always tough Cincinnati Astros. Gametime will be at 9:30 at Sycamore H.S.

Sunday

The Yankees try to get off to a 2-0 start as they take on the Rockies, Sunday April 24th at 9:30 am at Sycamore HS.

Mother Nature is the only one stopping the Yankees!

Yankees have their spring break extended as the Mariners game is rained out. On a side note, an unconfirmed source spotted Nate Mercer at a batting cage hitting live pitching. He may be back sooner than expected. Maybe he will help the Yankees hit the ball "HARD" against the Dragons on Wednesday May 18.

Newest Yankee

The Yankees have added a new member for 2006. Her name is Madison Ehrhardt, born January 25th, 2006. Madison tips the scales at 7 lbs 15 oz, and says she can't wait to get out to the ballpark with her brother Charlie and watch the Yankees play.

Up next are the Cincinnati Suds on Wednesday night at 6:30.


Sunday, June 25
Yankees back to .500 !!!!!!

The Yankees broke a three game losing streak Sunday with an 11-1 win over the Reds. Rob Rendle pitched 6 strong innings of one run baseball to pick up his third win. Mike Kretten closed the door, holding the Reds scoreless over the final two innings.

The Yankees woke up offensively late in the game scoring 7 runs over their final three at bats. Ehrhardt, Soto, Rendle, Mercer, McBurrows, Plaatje, and Younger had run scoring hits. Good team effort today.

Patriots beat Yankees!

The Yankees dug themselves a big hole early and couldn't recover from it in losing 12-4 to the Cheviot Patriots. The Yankees have now dropped four of their past five games and have dropped back under the .500 mark for the season at 4-5.

Monday, June 12
Rain, Rain, GO AWAY!!!

The weekly cycle of rain on Wednesday and Sunday continued this week and washed out the Yankees/Astros yesterday.

The same two teams will match up this Wednesday night (weather permitting)at Crosley field in Blue Ash. We have the late game (8:30) so lets try to get there early and get some swings in the batting cage.

One other note. Our game Sunday morning has been moved to Xavier University. I'll give you all the details as I get them. The one significant change (other than the new location) is the start time. Instead of our usual 9:30 first pitch, we will be getting started at 9:00. So don't forget to set your alarm clock a half hour earlier!


Monday, April 17
Opening Day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Yankees begin the 2006 season this Sunday morning at Sycamore High School against the Northern Kentucky Orioles. First pitch is set for 9:30 a.m.

The last time the Yankees met the Orioles was last June at Ryle High School. The Yankees took a 15-4 decision behind the strong pitching of Lucas Watson. Mo White contributed with a homerun (with a wood bat)while wearing tennis shoes !!!!!

Lets get off to another good start this year!!!!


More news and pictures coming

DG in the DR

The Roy Hobbs Dominican tournament starts today. The Yankees are being represented by outfielder David Graham. Check back for updates on Dave's big trip to Santo Domingo!

DG back from DR

Back from the DR, had a great time, met some great guys. We played 4 games in 3 days against DR teams. We went 1-3 in those 4 games. We played at the Florida Marlins Rookie camp, and in one of the Santo Domingo large stadiums (even though we didnt have but about 20 fans watching. Now for the important things, lets review "Dear Diary"...I went 3 for 9, (2 singles and a triple), 2 stolen bases, and 2 scores, with 1 RBI, (good night diary). I have to tell you guys, the DR is very poor but we all had a great time, i hope some of you can go next year.


Thursday, August 24
Three in a row for Yankees

The hatless Jim Decker and the rest of his Yankee teammates completed a season sweep of the Reds with a 10-0 win last night. Rob Rendle was almost unhittable recording 8 strikeouts in the win. Almost everyone contributed offensively, as the Yankees look to close the regular season with some momentum going into the playoffs.



Tuesday, August 29
Washed out again!!!!

Ironically our rainout makeup game Sunday was rained out. No game with the Orioles and no game until the playoffs.

This Wednesday we will twiddle our thumbs while the other 14 teams in the league are playing. The Yankees have been given a "bye", and if you are counting that is their 4th bye of the season. Combine that with 6 rainouts and 4 holidays we just weren't able to get in a good groove this year.

We also had some tough breaks this year. For example when we had a 5-1 lead on the White Sox in the top of the 5th inning, and the skies opened up costing us a potential win. Then there was the Cubs game when we stranded a small village on the basepaths, but still had a chance to win by loading the bases in the bottom of the 9th. A Cub wild pitch hit the backstop just right (or wrong in our case) and bounded right back to the catcher to tag the final out which would have tied the game. Then there was the Rangers game. Trailing 10-9 in the bottom of the last inning with 2 on and 1 out, and our hottest hitter coming up, a bolt of lightning struck nearby. The umpire wasted no time calling the game and depriving us of a shot at a walkoff win.

Despite all of that, the Yankees finish the regular season with a 13-10 record and third place in the National Division.

Certainly not what we had hoped for, especially coming off a great year in 2005, but we can make up for it with championship run in the tournament. The 13-10 record also guarantees a winning season for the Yankees for the third time in four seasons. Not bad for a team that hadn't come close to a winning season in each of its first four years of existence.

As it stands now the 3rd seeded Yankees are on track to match up with the sixth seeded Mariners in the first round of the playoffs sometime next week. Lets save our best for last!


Tuesday, September 19
Mariners dump Yankees in playoff opener

Put this one in the "it was bound to happen sooner or later category"

For the first time in team history the Mariners have beaten the Yankees, and it couldn't have come at a worse time. The M's plated 3 runs in the 8th to rally past the Yankees 8-7 in the playoff opener for both teams. The Yankees are now dropped to the losers bracket which makes winning a championship much harder. The Yankees will now have to win their next 6 games to claim the league title. Prior to the game the Yankees were 13-0 all time against the M's!


Thursday, October 5
Season ends with loss to the Reds!

The up and down 2006 season ended with a 7-5 loss in the playoffs to the Reds.

Thursday, May 7
Yankees win another close one!

The Yankees were able to post another win without much hitting Sunday as they outlasted the Royals 4-2. David Pearson was solid again, going 7+ innings of 2 run baseball for the win. K.C. Fread threw the last two innings to pick up the save.

 The Yanks now have 2 wins despite scoring just 6 runs and collecting 9 hits in 2 games. The pitching and defense are getting it done so far.

 

Next up will be the Astros on Wednesday may 13th at Roselawn



Monday, May 18
Yanks strand small village on bases, but still win!

The Yankees moved to 3-0 on Sunday after outlasting the Dragons 5-2. The Yankees left a ton of runners on base, but still scored enough to claim the victory thanks to solid pitching and defense.

Jared Cutter went 8 innings for the win, while rookie Adam Weiss threw a scoreless ninth to pick up the save in his Yankees debut.

 Eric Dittmer made two highlight reel catches in right, while Mike Soto held down the fort in centerfield.

 The Yankees will try to make it 4 wins in as many tries as they take on the Astros on Wednesday night at Sycamore at 6:30.

Yankees open with a win

image_name2

It wasn't easy, and usually never is against the Suds, but somehow we pulled out a 2-1 opening day win.

 David Pearson, KC Fread, and Jared Cutter combined to no hit the Suds and allow us to escape with a win despite collecting just 4 hits.

 Brian Weinewuth made a nice play at short to save a pair of runs, while Mike Shrimpton gunned down two would be basestealers.

The offense just couldn't shake off the rust, literally.  Tip of the cap to Suds pitcher Brian Rust, who looked like he was in midseason form striking out 16 Yankees in 7 innings.

 

 



Tuesday, April 28
Royals on deck!

It doesn't get any easier this Sunday as the Yankees take on their long time rivals the Royals. Last year the Royals took both regular season games (3-0 and 9-4), but the Yankees did get some measure of revenge in the postseason winning 3-2.

 Historically, this series couldn't be any closer. Since 2003, the two teams have split 19 games 9-9-1. The Royals and Yankees have met in the playoffs in 3 of the last 4 years and have ended each others season on all 3 occasions.

5/14/2003 Yankees 1 0 Royals 
6/29/2003 Yankees 5 21 Royals 
7/16/2003 Yankees 9 8 Royals 
7/7/2004 Yankees 2 8 Royals 
7/21/2004 Yankees 8 8 Royals 
6/5/2005 Yankees 4 6 Royals  
7/24/2005 Yankees  9 8 Royals 
8/21/2005 Yankees  8 13 Royals 
9/14/2005 Yankees 9 3 Royals  
9/25/2005 Yankees  4 14 Royals 
9/28/2005 Yankees 8 9 Royals  
8/2/2006 Yankees 3 13 Royals 
7/8/2007 Yankees  10 5 Royals 
8/1/2007 Yankees 11 1 Royals 
9/5/2007 Yankees  7 3 Royals 
9/19/2007 Yankees  7 6 Royals 
7/23/2008 Yankees  0 3 Royals 
8/3/2008 Yankees 4 9 Royals 
9/14/2008 Yankees  3 2 Royals 
 

 

First pitch is set for 9:30 at Sycamore HS, it should be another well played tight ball game.



Tuesday, July 15
Yanks blank Rockies

Matt Raih's first start was a CG 1 hit victory. The only Rockies baserunner was erased on a caught stealing. Yankees score 11 times in 4 at bats.

Saturday, August 9
Yankees take out the Bulls

Backed by the strong pitching of David Pearson, the Yankees outlasted the Bulls 6-1, to complete a season sweep.

Saturday, August 18
Yankees struggle to get tie.......

The Yankees struggled through seven innings with the Rangers Wednesday night and were lucky to get out with a tie. Five errors and a lack of timely hitting do us in. Lack of daylight prevents extra innings.

Saturday, August 18
Wheels fall off after 7 innings!

Jared Cutter had a perfect game going through seven innings, retiring the first 21 Cubs he faced. Then the Cubs were able to string together a pair of runs to tie it in the 8th, and four more in the 10th to hang on for the win.

The game was marred by the dirty play of #30 for the Cubs Vince Grant, who attemped to injure our shortstop on a slide into second base, then proceeded to spit on him. Third year in a row Grant has pulled these bush league tactics against us. Since this was his second ejection in less than a year, he has been suspended for the rest of 2007, and hopefully beyond!  There is no room in the league for a guy like this!



Monday, August 21
Yankees double up Mariners!

The Yankees scored 7 runs in the first two innings and held on the rest of the way for a 10-5 win.

Bradley Younger, Matt Menke, and Mike Kretten did a nice job on the hill keeping the Mariner bats relatively quiet.

The Yankees move two games over .500 for the first time in two months.



New pictures

Check out "Yankee pictures" link. You'll find some new photos. Also a new photo for our fearless leader under the "roster" link.

2003 RHWS pics

I have added some pictures from our trip to the RHWS in 2003. Click on the "Yankee pictures" link to see them. Keep in mind that the quality is poor because they are polaroids that I took a picture of with my digital. I guess I need a scanner! My favorite in the one of DG here to the left!

Dominican Republic Tourney ON

great news, the tourney down in the Dominican Republic is ON. the dates are wed Feb. 23 thru sun Feb. 27. if anyone is interested in going, you need to contact tom giffin ASAP. David Graham in most likely going, so contact him if you need any other info.

Friday, June 16
Yankees embarrassed!

The Yankees issued 13 walks and hit 2 batters en route to a 19-1 loss to the Astros. Definitely one to forget!

Thursday, June 1
Yankees blank Rockies!

The Yankees used a 20 hit attack Sunday in their 19-0 win over the Rockies. Ken Akins and Mike Soto each homered, and the pitching staff combined on a 2 hit shutout.

Starting pitcher Rob Rendle was unhittable, tossing 4 no hit innings, in earning his second win of the season. Mike Kretten threw 2 scoreless innings of one hit baseball, and Matt Menke threw a scoreless 7th.

The Yankees have now won 3 straight games following their season opening loss to the Cubs!!!


Wood bat vote

The league vote for wood bats in 2005 happens this Sunday.

Monday, June 5
Yankees fall to Cobalts

The Yankees dropped a 9-1 decision to the Cobalts Wednesday night. The Yankees couldn't muster much offense of crafty righthander Paul Krause. The only real highlight was a solo homerun by Rob Rendle.

The Yankees will be playing the Astros this Sunday 6/11, and next Wednesday 6/14. Please check your schedules because we originally had a scheduled bye for this Sunday 6/11. The game will be at Future Stars Park, and will be a wood bat game.

The following Sunday (6/18) our game against the White Sox has been moved from Sycamore to Xavier.


Wednesday, May 17
3 outs away!!!!

With the Yankees just 3 outs away from their first win in 2006, Mother nature screwed us again!

The Yankees led the White Sox 5-1 in the top of the 5th when the lightning picked up and the skies opened forcing the cancellation of the game.

For those of you counting at home we've officially played 1 game over the first month of the season.

Yankees vs Mariners Sunday morning @ Lebanon


Sunday, May 21
Yankees break into win column!!!!

We had to wait quite a while, (8 months to be exact) but the Yankees are finally back in the win column! The Yankees offense exploded for 14 runs, while veterans Willie Bailey and Mike Kretten kept the Mariners offense at bay in a 14-4 win.

It was a total team effort. Chris Shrimpton had an RBI hit, Rob Rendle stole 3 bases (and a homerun from a Mariner hitter) Mike Soto caught a good game, and even stole 2 bases while he was on the bench (thanks to Rob). Nate Mercer had 3 hits and 2 RBI's despite switching bats every time out!


Matt Menke had a hit and scored a pair of runs. Jim Decker added a base hit in the 5 run second inning. Jason Ehrhardt had a homerun and 5 RBI's. Brad Younger reached base a couple of times and showed us how to properly execute a "butt slide" while scoring all the way from first base on Ditmer's double. Eric Ditmer had 2 hits and 3 RBI's, John Krugman made several diving plays at third base, and Dan Fread made his Yankees debut by drawing a walk and scoring a run.

Good effort guys. No game until Wednesday May 31st at Deer Park High School vs the White Sox.



2 Division Format

With a potential for 16 teams this year we will be going to AAA and AA format with the schedule favoring games within your division. The preliminary breakdown shakes out like this:

AAA                            AA

Suds                           Yankees
Astros                         Rockies
Red Sox                        Royals
Rangers                        Cubs
Bulls                         Dragons
Reds                           Mariners
Cobalts                        Hawks (from Dayton league)
Orioles                        Old Timers (Suds 40's)

2 seperate "2 and out" tournaments will begin on Sept. 7th.


Get Well Wishes for Nate

Yankee slugger Nate Mercer had successful shoulder surgery April 6th. Doc Kremchek repaired Nate's shoulder and after some rehab., he will be back. Nate's goal is to get back into the batting order as a DH midway through the year. We all wish Nate a speedy recovery!

Sunday, July 22
Yankees bounce back!

The Yankees got back in the win column Sunday with a 7-2 win over the Suds. Jared Cutter was dominant, throwing seven innings of one hit baseball, while striking out eight.

Several hitters recorded two hits and Rack stole 4 bases without sliding!

Web gem goes to Plaatje on diving stop of line drive in the 5th!


Wednesday, August 1
Much better........

A marked improvement from Sunday's disaster, as the Yankees beat the Royals 11-1. Paul Bennick throws five solid innings to pick up his second win. The offense banged out 13 hits led by Casey Hall with 3 hits.

Rob Rendle shows off his cannon for an arm in right by throwing out two runners at the plate. Nice win for the Yanks.

Don't forget Sunday is a 12:00 start time at Sycamore against the Dayton Tornadoes.


Wednesday, April 30
2 games 2 wins!

The Yankees improved their record to 2-0 with a 13-3 win over the Rangers Sunday at Lebanon. Next up will be the Cubs on Sunday at Sycamore

Sunday, May 18
1st Loss

The Yankees blew a 6-2 lead late and dropped a 7-6 decision against the Cubs. The Yanks fall to 2-1 on the year.

Sunday, May 18
Yankees get back to winning ways!

Playing for the first time in two weeks a shorthanded Yankees team of 11 players rebounded for a 15-4 win over the Mariners. After an impressive round of hitting infield grounders Paul Bennick was inserted in the 2 hole and responded with a pair of hits and 2 RBI's.

 

Casey Hall added 3 hits and 3 RBI's, while Jared Cutter drove in three on two hits. Jim Rack made a successful return from a brief retirement and sucked just a little! Other than that it was business as usual, 4 more walks for Mike Shrimpton and another HBP for the elder Shrimpton.

 On the hill Dave Pearson was dominant, throwing 5 innings of 2 run baseball with 12 strikeouts, earning his first win as a Yankee. The Yankees will try to run their record out to 4-1 Wednesday night as they play host to former teammate Brad Swillinger and the Orioles.



Thursday, May 22
Yankees drop the O's 10-1

The Yankees improved to 4-1 Wednesday night with a 10-1 win over the Northern Kentucky Orioles. Matt Menke led the way with 4 hits and 4 RBI's, while Paul Bennick threw 4 strong innings for his first win of 2008. Other highlights included Rack stealing home plate, and Casey Hall throwing out a batter from right field! Your typical 9-3 putout on a grounder into right field!

 The Yankees are off until June 1st when they take on last season's league champion the Cincinnati Sting!



Tuesday, June 3
Yankees lose a tough one

The Yankees came up a run short against the Sting for the second consecutive time losing 3-2. Sanders proved to be tough as usual against us, recording 14 strikeouts in 7 innings. The Yankees will try to avenge an early season loss to the Cubs Wednesday night at Sycamore. First pitch is 6:30



Monday, August 14
Yankees come out flat against Cubs!

For the third time this season the Yankees failed to match the intensity of the Cubs and dropped an 8-2 decision. Numerous errors and a failure to get anything going offensively cost the Yankees in this one.

Hats off to the Cubs who got a great pitching effort and played gold glove defense, while taking advantage of our miscues in the field.

Maybe we can give them a better game in the tournament?


Thursday, August 17
Rendle pitches Yankees to victory!

Rob Rendle threw a complete game, while helping his own cause with a two run triple as the Yankees outlasted the Rockies 7-4. The win allows the Yankees to sweep the season series from the Rockies.

The Yankees played solid defense in the win highlighted by a tremendous game ending catch in right field by Craig Feltner.

Hats off to Mel Kattleman of the Rockies who threw a great game and deserved better as the Yankees were able to get quite a few "seeing eye" base hits.

Next up for the Yankees will be a third matchup with the Mariners at Future Stars Park Sunday morning.


Tuesday, July 15
8 men out!

Only 8 players show, but the Yankees are able to pull out a narrow victory over the OS Suds. Casey Hall with a complete game victory.

25 wins!

image_name2

2008 was a great year for the Yankees. The team set a record with 25 wins and made it to the tournament championship game. The 2009 season looks just as promising, with a few key additions,  the Yankees should be able to make another run for the league championship.

 

 



Thursday, August 3
Yanks play longball and win big!

Brad Younger and Jim Rack each homered as the Yankees erased an early deficit and went on to beat the Rockies 11-4. Lucas Watson continued his mastery on the hill going seven innings and allowing just 4 runs, (3 earned). Lucas was nearly unhittable after the third inning.

Speaking of unhittable, Rob Rendle pitched the final two innings retiring all six Rockie hitters he faced, striking out five of them! In all the Yankees banged out 21 hits in the victory.

The Yankees will attempt to break their win/loss/win/loss pattern and go back over .500 as they play the Orioles Wednesday night.


Monday, August 7
Rendle, Rack, and Soto lead the attack!

Passing motorists on Eastbound 275 had to dodge four Yankee homerun balls on Wednesday night!

Jim Rack led off the game for the Yankees with a solo homerun. Mike Soto followed with another solo shot after Rack, then two batters later Rob Rendle made it three homeruns in the first four batters with another longball. Rendle hit another moonshot in the 5th inning, and pitched 4 innings of 1 run baseball for the win.

The Yankees move back over .500 mark as they prepare to battle the first place Cubs on Sunday.

Yankees break curse against Bulls

Yankees score 8 runs over the final three innings and break a 4 year losing streak versus the Bulls. Pearson was solid again, going into the 6th inning. Casey Hall came up big with a 3 run double in the 7th to give the Yankees a comfortable margin.

Sunday, April 20
Season opener a success

The Yankees opened the 2008 regular season with a convincing 12-3 win over the Rockies.

 Jared Cutter, Dave Pearson, Casey Hall, and Ryan Faehr limited the hard hitting Rockies tojust three runs, while eveyone in the lineup had at least one hit, including two off the bench for Eric Abney. It was believed to be Abney's first hits since the first Bush administration.

Just to show some things never change, Mike Soto had 4 hits including several of the one handed variety,  Chris Shrimpton was plunked by a pitch in his frst AB, and Ehrhardt broke one of his bats in the first game again this year!

 No Wednesday games for us yet. Next Sunday we'll tee it up with the Rangers at Lebanon High School at 9:30.



Sunday, July 8
Yankees outlast Royals!

Casey Hall threw 6 innings to pick up his 5th win of the season as the Yankees got past the Royals 10-5. Bradley Younger picked up hits in each of his first three at bats driving in 4 runs. Ehrhardt, Rack, and Mercer all collected three hits.

Cutter threw three strong innings for the save. The Yanks will take on the Rockies Wednesday night at Sycamore.


Wednesday, July 11
Yankees win again!

The Yankees scored 4 runs over the final three innings to get past the Rockies 5-1. Paul Bennick was dominant in throwing a one hitter for his first career win. The lone Rockies run was unearned. Fread had a tie breaking triple in the 5th, Cutter added 2 RBI's, and Ditmer was the only Yankee with multiple hits with 2 singles.

The Yankees improve to 10-5 on the season and will try to run their win streak out to 3 as they host the Orioles Sunday morning at Sycamore.

For you veterans, our old friend David Graham is in town and will be making an appearance to watch his old teammates Sunday.

Yankees keep Orioles in the nest!

The Yankees used a 6 run 1st inning to propel them to an 11-1 win over the Orioles Sunday.

Lucas Watson threw a complete game allowing just one unearned run to pick up the win.

Highlights included the 2007 debut from 7 year veteran Craig Feltner, whose shameless pining for a hit on what was an obvious error was quite embarrassing! Although not quite as embarrassing as the subsequent caught stealing that followed the big "hit"! Nonetheless, I speak for all Yankees as we congratulate Craig and his wife Stephanie on the birth of the daughter Georgia last Wednesday!

Also great to see former Yankee David "DG" Graham in the dugout visiting his old friends.

Big game for the Yankees on Wednesday night as they play host to the league leading Astros at Sycamore.


Thursday, July 19
Yankees lose 4 run lead!

The Yankees jumped out to a 4 run lead on the strength of Homeruns from Jim Rack and Jared Cutter. The Astros rallied for three in the 6th to tie it and one in the seventh to win it.

Updated profile

Ken Akins profile has been updated on the "roster" page. Check it out.

I still need to get a profile from Jim, Lucas, Willie, Mario, and Brad.


Wednesday, May 31
Yankees beat White Sox

The Yankees improved to 2-1 after winning a see-saw battle with the White Sox 9-8. John Krugman had two triples and a game winning double in the bottom of the seventh. Rob Rendle had a big triple in the 6th and picked up the win by pitching the last two and two thirds innings.

Starting pitcher Lucas Watson made his 2006 debut by throwing three strong innings.


#9 hanging them up

Please join me in wishing longtime Yankee Ron Fread nothing but the best as he has decided to retire from basbeall. Ron was a valuable member of the Yankees logging a bunch of innings on the mound and behind the plate. Ron threw four complete games last season, including three wins over the Dragons.

We'll miss you Ron!

Yankees drop opener to Cubs

The Yankees dropped their 2006 opener to the Cubs 7-1. The Yankees couldn't get much going offensively mustering just 5 hits. It seemed like most of the hard hit balls were right at Cub fielders!

The Cubs played a great game defensively, and their pitching was tremendous. To quote the Cubs manager "Probably best all-around game played by Cubs in recent memory." That about says it all!

The Yankees are idle for the next 10 days with the next game being Wednesday May 17th vs the White Sox @ Sycamore.

RAINOUT

Mother Nature gets the first win of 2006 as the Yankees and Orioles were done in by a late night storm Saturday making the field unplayable.

RAINOUT #2

The Yankees get rained out for a 2nd straight week!!!

Dittmer wins Poker Party

In the first of what will hopefully be many wins for Eric Dittmer in 2005, Eric outlasted Matt Menke to claim victory in the Texas Hold 'em tournament.

Matt Menke finished a respectable second, while Mike "Fold 'em" Plaatje finished third. Jason Ehrhardt finished in fourth, Rich Sarcone finished a distant fifth, while David Graham embarrassed himself by finishing dead last.

Looking forward to the first workout next week!

Yankees get stung!

Jeff Sanders and the Sting were too much for the Yankees today. The Yanks were only able to collect 3 hits of the Sting lefty. Yankees get a week off with the 4th of July holiday on Wednesday. We'll try to get back on track against a good Royals team next Sunday!

Monday, July 31
Elementary my dear Watson!

The Yankees put Thursday's debacle behind them and outlasted the Reds 12-5 on Sunday in a game that featured triple digit heat indexes. Lucas Watson continues to come up big for the Yanks going all 9 innings for the win against a hard hitting Reds team.

Great job by Lucas in the heat. A complete game is just what our depleted pitching staff needed!

Offensively Chris Shrimpton and Jason Ehrhardt each had three hits and three RBI's, and the trio of Eric Ditmer, Matt Menke and Mike Plaatje put on a bunting clinic in the second inning leading to three Yankee runs.

Ditmer and Menke also had highlight reel catches, stealing would be base hits from Reds batters. Once again the Yankees have reached the .500 mark. Time for a good run down the home stretch.


Thursday, August 3
A Royal buttkicking!!!!!!

How the mighty have fallen! The Yankees were run-ruled Wednesday night by the team they battled with all last year for the National Division championship.

The game was not even close as the Yankees surrendered 5 first inning runs and never threatened the Royals.

The only highlight was a 2 run homerun by Rob Rendle, his 4th of the season. Other than Rob's homer it was a night to forget.





Sunday, July 23
Yankees beat up on Mariners!

The Yankees offense pounded out a bunch of hits and 18 runs in an 18-4 rout of the Mariners. Rob Rendle hit his third homerun of the season, while Brad Younger stayed hot by hitting his first career triple in the Yankees 6 run first inning.

Lucas Watson pitched a complete game allowing just 4 runs (3 earned) over seven innings, in picking up his second win of the season.

The Yankees broke a two game losing streak, and have now gotten their record even at 7-7. This week the Yanks will take on the Rangers at Crosley Wednesday night, followed by a Sunday morning matchup with the Reds at Sycamore.


Tuesday, July 25
Yankees struck by lightning!

The Yankees/Rangers game was stopped in the bottom of the 6th due to a lightning strike in the distance.

The umpires had already decided the 6th inning would be the last inning due to darkness. The Yankees held the Rangers scoreless in the top of the 6th, and had hoped for an opportunity to win, or at least tie the game in the bottom of the inning.

The Yankees were trailing 10-9, with one out, and had the tying run on second and the winning run on first with our hottest hitter Bradley Younger due up.

As the rain started to fall, the home plate umpire claimed he saw lightning, and ran for the parking lot, leaving us with a one run loss.

Another tough break in a season that has been full of tough breaks!


Friday, June 22
Yankees get back on track

One game after their most disappointing loss of the season, the Yankees got back in the win column Wednesday night with a 7-4 win oveer the Rockies. Bradley Younger stroked the big hit with a 3 run double in the fourth that put the Yanks up 6-4. The 4th inning was the big inning for the home team as they dented the plate 5 times.

Casey Hall overcame a rough start and dominated over the final three innings to get the complete game and his 4th win of the season. The Yankees improve to 8-4 on the season and will face the Dayton Cardinals Sunday morning at Sycamore.

Right handed pitcher Eric Maye has decided to return to the Yankees in 2005. Eric had been missing from the Yankees for so long I thought I saw him on a milk carton last week!

The Sting get Stung!

The "same old Yankees" stepped up big time and blanked the Sting on Wednesday night. Casey Hall was the star, throwing a 2 hit shutout and driving in the games first run. Bradley Younger's bases loaded walk forced in the other run, giving the Yankees the final margin of victory.

The victory gives the Yanks 6 consecutive wins. They will try to exact some measure of revenge on the Bulls Sunday at Deer Park. The Bulls handed the Yankees their most recent loss 6 games ago in a 1-0 defeat.


Sunday, June 17
Win streak goes by the wayside!

Quite simply the Yankees got outplayed Sunday against the Bulls. The Bulls, hit, pitched, fielded, and especially ran the bases better than we did.

We need a better effort on Wednesday if we want to beat the Rockies.


Saturday, July 15
Yankees drop 1 run decision to Cubs!

The Yankees stranded a small village on the base paths in the late innings and dropped a 5-4 decision to the Cubs.

The Yankees loaded the bases in the 8th and 9th innings but failed to dent the plate. The final play of the game was a tough break as well. With the bases loaded, the Cubs pitcher threw a wild pitch, which would normally have scored the tying run and put the winning run on third. Unfortunately for us, the ball hit directly on the fencepost sending it right back to the catcher and setting up the final out. If the ball hits any other spot on the fence it would have died and the tying run would have scored. Tough break for the Yanks!!!!!

The loss wasted a good pitching performance by Rob Rendle, as he went the final 8 innings allowing just 3 runs.


Sunday, July 23
Yanks lose to Bulls

The Yankees dropped a 9-5 decision to the Bulls Thursday night in a makeup game from last week.

Sunday, July 9
Yankees shut out Orioles 14-0!!!

Rob Rendle threw six shutout innings and hit a three run homerun as the Yankees cruised to a 14-0 win over the Orioles.

Bradley Younger was the hitting star collecting four hits, including his first homerun of the season. The win allows the Yankees to move back over the .500 mark for the first time in three weeks.


Saturday, July 15
Yankees/Bulls rained out

Mother Nature claims another Yankee game!!!!

Another walk off win !

After surrendering a 2-0 lead in the top of the seventh, the Yankees battled back for a 3-2 win in eight innings. It was our second walk off extra inning win this week.

Nate Mercer's base hit allowed K.C. Fread to score from second for the win. Rob Rendle picked up the win in relief.

Casey Hall threw 6 and a third innings allowing just two runs. In fact Casey took a shutout into the 7th inning before the Suds rallied.

The Yankees will try to extend their win streak to 5 games on Sunday as they play host to the Orioles at Sycamore.


Sunday, June 10
Yankees stop birds, run win streak to 5!

Eric Abney threw 6 solid innings for his first win as a Yankee and Jim Rack made his 2007 pitching debut, tossing the final three innings and recording the save.

Joe Colaco picked up his first career hit with a single into right center in the ninth. Other offensive highlights included RBI's from both Shrimptons, Ehrhardt, Menke, and probably a couple of other guys?

The Yankees have now won five consecutive games, running their season record to 6-3. Next up will be the Cincinnati Sting Wednesday night at Sycamore.


Monday, July 30
Would have been better off staying in bed!

It was that kind of day for the Yankees as they failed to do anything right in losing to the Reds 15-7.

The Yanks will try to shake off the embarrassment of this loss Wedesday as they host the Royals.


Thursday, May 24
Yankees make it two in a row!

The Yankees scored two runs in the top of the seventh last night to outlast the Cubs 6-5. The Yankees blew a 3-0 lead in the 5th as the Cubs rallied for a 5 spot.

Casey Hall picks up his second win of the season in relief and helps himself with 2 hits. Jim Rack added a pair of hits including a walk that forced in the game winning run.

Yankees off for the next 10 days thanks to Memorial Day and the Patiots dropping from the league. We'll get back to action Sunday June 3rd vs the Reds. 9:00 start time at CHCA!


Sunday, June 3
Yankes get Reds in 11!

It took 11 innings but the Yankees pulled out a hard earned victory over the Reds at CHCA 5-4. Mike Shrimpton plated the game winner in the 11th with his first career hit and Lucas Watson threw all 11 innings for the win.

Lucas threw a great game and had some solid defense behind him. Zach Poelma made a pair of diving stops at third, Paul Rahn made a great catch in left, and Rack and Ehrhardt turned in a nice double play. Mike Shrimpton did a great job behind the plate and threw out a would be base stealer at second.

Rendle had 4 hits, and Rack and Dittmer each had a pair of hits as well.

The Yankees have now won three staight and will try to keep it going Wednesday night againt the Old School Suds at Future Stars Park.


Wednesday, July 5
Yankees sober up Brew Crew!

The Yankees were able to "sober" up the Brew Crew 6-2 behind some solid defense and outstanding pitching by Lucas Watson. Lucas earned his first win of 2006 by going all seven innings allowing just 2 runs, (one earned).

The win allows the Yankees to get back to the .500 mark on the season at 5-5. The Yankees will welcome in the Orioles to Sycamore Sunday morning at 9:30.

MISSING: Yankee Bats!

The Yankees wasted another good pitching performance last night in a 1-0 loss to the Bulls. Casey Hall threw 4 innings of one run baseball followed by two dominant innings from Rob Rendle.

Unfortunately the Yankees were only able to collect three hits in being blanked for the second consecutive game. Several balls were hit very hard but they seemed to be right at Bulls outfielders every time! No breaks for the Yankees again last night!

For those of you counting, that is 3 losses by a combined 4 runs!

Next up will be the Mariners on Sunday morning at Sycamore.


Sunday, May 20
Yankees get 2nd win!

Lucas Watson picked up his first win of the season with 5 solid innings and Eric Abney made a good first impression with two shutout innings as the Yankees cruised 19-2.

After getting shut out in each of their past two games the Yankee bats came alive Sunday with everyone contributing in some way.

The Yankees will try to get back to the .500 mark on Wednesday as they battle the Cubs at Crosley.


Thursday, May 10
Yanks Blanked!

The Yankees could only muster 2 hits off White Sox lefty Jim Demler and lost 2-0. Casey Hall was brilliant in a losing effort, going 8 innings of 2 run baseball and recording 13 strikeouts.

Monday, April 30
Yankees break into win column!

Casey Hall threw 6 and a third innings of three hit baseball to pick up the win, and helped his own cause with a pair of base hits. K.C. Fread continued his torrid start with a two run homerun to help break open the game late.

The Yankees will play their first Wednesday game this week at Crosley Field against the newly formed Cincinnati Sting. First pitch is scheduled for 7 p.m.


Sunday, February 13
THE VOTES ARE IN......

You will soon be hearing the crack of wooden bats at Yankees baseball games in 2005. The decision has been made to use wooden bats this year in games where upper division teams play a lower division team as we convert to full time use in 2006.

Monday, April 23
Yankees drop opener!

The Yankees were just one hit away from their first ever win over the Astros Sunday but fell short by a single run in losing 11-10. It was an impressive debut for K.C. Fread as he collected 4 hits and played great defense behind the dish. Nate Mercer added 3 hits, and Rob Rendle was solid on the mound and added a couple of hits including a long triple.



The Yankees will try to recover from this tough loss next Sunday as they battle the Rangers at Lebanon at 9:30. Remember NO Wednesday game this week. We will play on Wednesday of next week at Crosley Field.



Yankees play for first place

The 4-2 Yankees will look to break a 2 game losing streak as they take on the Royals in Middletown Sunday morning at 9 a.m.
'
Both teams are tied atop the National division standings with 4-2 records.

Ken Akins update

My apologies to Ken Akins! He is alive and well and playing in the MSBL in Indianapolis. His new team is called the Stallions, check out the link!

Hopefully they will wise up and use Mr. Hit By Pitch, as more than just a pinch hitter!!


Thursday, April 20
DG update

Former Yankee David Graham has hooked on with the Twins of the Austin Metro Baseball League. DG had 2 hits in his first game, helping his team win a game over a team calling itself the Yankees!

Dave wanted to say hello to everyone and wish us luck Sunday against the Orioles.
He also wanted to tell Mo that he is not letting anyone disrespect his fields down there either!

Click on the Austin Metro Baseball link below to see how Dave is doing.


Astros Book

I found a book written about the Cincinnati Astros of our league. It details the 2001 season and how and why these guys got back to playing baseball. It even has a mention about their game in 2001 against the Yankees. A few of you old timers may have been on one of those teams!
